Notice of Funding Opportunity for the Julia Taft Fund 2024

Overview

Each year, the Julia Taft Fund awards to address gaps in refugee assistance by issuing grants to local nonprofit organizations for quick-impact, time-limited projects. Grants are intended to address one-time needs or interventions, and/or respond to needs not addressed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), or other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) receiving U.S. government funding. The activities of the proposed project should not be directed to sustained, long-term programs. We encourage community-based organizations (CBOs) and NGOs to submit proposals. For FY2024, the U.S. Embassy may award multiple grants of up to $25,000 each, pending availability of funding.

What is an appropriate use of the Fund?

Taft funding may be applied to projects where refugees, asylum seekers, and/or refugee returnees comprise at least 50 percent of project participants. Projects specifically focused on LGBTQI+ refugees, asylum seekers, and/or refugee returnees are welcomed.

Grant Application Process and Timeline

Organizations interested in applying for the Julia Taft Grant should submit a complete proposal by 11:59pm (Jakarta time) on Friday, March 8, 2024. Proposals must be sent via e-mail to jakartarefugeesection@state.gov and should include e-mail and telephone contact information.

U.S. Embassy Jakarta, in Coordination with the Bureau of Population, Refugees and Migration of the U.S. Department of State, will consider the final proposals and will seek to inform organizations about funding decisions in June or July 2024.
